One of the top five things that most people list when thinking about New Year’s resolutions is organization. We all have areas of our lives where we could stand to be more organized. From closets to kitchen clutter, garage disasters to the kids’ rooms, there never seems to be enough space to keep everything put away. One of the keys to home organization is to take advantage of your local self storage facility and keep seasonal items off-site in a secured space. Fall River storage units through Affordable Storage can be a great way to make more space at home for the things that you use all year long.
There are tips all over the internet and in just about every home magazine on how to use storage unit organization to your advantage. If you are looking for a storage for rent in Fall River, look no further than Affordable Storage. Our units are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by an on-site manager and security surveillance system, plus our facility features an automatic gated entrance and keypad entry system for even more protection.

Storing for the Seasons
The best place to start to find more room at home and keep your valuable items and heirlooms protected is to store according to the season. In New England we have things that are definitely for summer and other things that are definitely for winter, this includes recreational items, sports equipment, household tools, seasonal clothing and much more. Learning how to stay on top of seasonal storage in your Fall River storage units can really boost your organizational skills and abilities at home.
Tips for seasonal storage include:
- purchasing color-coded plastic bins to keep everything together and organized
- orange for fall items, red-and-green for the holidays, blue for other winter items, pastel colors for spring and vibrant colors for summer are just some suggestions
- group everything at the self storage facility according to season and color for easy retrieval and exchange
- label the plastic bins simply and clearly, such as “decorations”, “winter coats”, “beach toys” or “gardening tools” so you can find what you want without having to open every single box in the storage unit
- consider purchasing storage shelves for smaller boxes and items – this is a great way to keep everything up off the floor, as well as easy to see and reach
Spring Storage Ideas
When spring rolls around – not the date on the calendar, but the time when the temperature and season actually changes – it’s a good idea to start packing away the really heavy coats, scarves and other winter gear to prepare it for the Fall River storage units. You can bring the items you know you won’t need anymore to the self storage facility and bring home the bins that are marked with spring jackets and lighter clothing. By the time you are ready to put away all of the winter things, you can retrieve the rest of the spring boxes and be ready for warmer weather.
Summer Storage Ideas
There are a lot of things that we only use in the summer months as well. Bathing suits, beach towels, beach toys, sports equipment, barbecue tools and seasonal holiday decorations. Storing your summer items keeps them safe from the damaging effects of winter snow and ice, plus it gives you more room to keep other items that you are using during the other seasons throughout the year.
Fall Storage Ideas
Autumn brings its own set of clothing, challenges, sports and activities. Getting storage for rent in Fall River to store these items when they aren’t in use helps to keep them clean, dust-free and ready for use when the weather starts to turn cool. Fall jackets, sweaters and seasonal decorations for Halloween and Thanksgiving can all be stored neatly away in our self storage facility and then easily retrieved when the summer items are put away for the season.
Winter Storage Ideas
By the time winter rolls around, the bulky things come out like the heavy jackets and boots – if you haven’t already pulled them out for the fall – plus all of the winter sports items, such as skis, sleds, boards and more. Pulling all of this out makes even more room for the spring and summer fun items that will be stored over the long winter months. In fact, you can even store your boats, personal watercraft and RVs at our self storage facility in Fall River.
